Subject: is this a joke?
how many of these perfect soundboard shows are gonna be listed that I CANT download? Others seem to have downloaded it... WTF
Subject: You Could Do Worse
I was at this show and it wasn't a bad show for 1995. Heck it wasn't even the worst Spectrum show I had seen on March 17th, that dishonor goes to 03\17\92.
The first set was bland with a decent Peggy-O leading the way. Loose Lucy finally saw the band pick up some steam but the set abruptly ended after that.
The 2nd set had a great set list and while the playing never quite matched the selections, it was still respectable all things considered. Truckin\NSB was a nice combo and the three post Space songs all were delivered with some drive, particularly SOTM.
The 03/19 show with Unbroken Chain gets most of the attention from this stand but the shows on 03/17 and 03/18 are much better. 03/17/95 is a decent outing for this time period, you could do worse.
Subject: Phil and Bobby
I just want to back up the comment by shagymagnolia Phil and Bobby have given us many many more years beyond Jerry and have done it in a way only the dead could. Thanks to them both I have been able to have many good times and memories with this music far beyond 1995. Thanks

Subject: Oh, Philly Spectrum (andJFK)
Yes, it's true, Jerry and the guys Loved this place. These special venues evolved through multi-factorial spectacles. Always, existed an exchange of energies, however, when it climaxes to the boiling point where the Music Plays the Band, that's, when time is actually altered, traveled if you will. These '95 shows didn't do it for me as the mid to late 80's Spectrum shows. Not to take away from someone else's experience, as they should be treasured as my own. Jerry is really shot here. The band had it with Jerry to the point where they were forced to focus on putting on the show themselves, much without Jerry. This setlist goes down in Grateful Dead history. Musically, it doesn't follow suit. For those of you catching these shows for the first or near first times, check out '87'88'89 Philly shows and, 7/10/89 at JFK in Philly. Otherwise check out Albany '90 or Hampton '86 '87'88'89. Other than my old '70's shows, or the late '60's early '70's, I'm just looking to turn you on to points where there was more, absolute Peace and Harmony with the Band and her Music. Thanks Bobby and Phil for picking up the pieces and moving on begrudgingly, yet so, so brilliantly. WE ALL LOVE YOU!
Subject: Oh well
Hey, I love the 95 tour, warts and all. I think most of the shows are great. This night finds Garcia nearly MIA however, and sloppy when he does participate. The rest of the band follows suit, and turns in a choppy performance. Things change bigtime the next night (18th) with maybe the best show of Spring 95.
Subject: St Patty's Day!
It's kinda neat to hear Phil singing so much with his vocals so loud, knowing that the Unbroken Chain was gonna get busted out 2 nights later. He's warming up his voice and getting those vocals dialed in.
Jerry sounds wiped out....slide on NSB, I don't think I ever heard Jerry do that. SOTM is very up-tempo and happy, but the drummers screw Jerry up by trying at least twice to slow him down before they finally succumb to his tempo.....the "be with you" refrain is nice though.
Subject: the last spetrum shows
philly seemed to be a special place for the dead.That might be because i live here.But I will always rember this run. The sound quality is very good,always will rember that Jerry had a telaprompter on stage to help with the words. Even though we knew it was near the end It made it that more sweet.1980-1995 at the spectrum for me lots of great times thank you Jerry!
Subject: Be With You!
Great show-saw it with my high school sweetheart. The SOTM brings back great memories. Like it is for so many of us a GD show has come to represent a very important time in my life. This archive isn't just music. It is a a collection of inspiration, joy, heartache, love,and all those moments when we realized exactly just what it meant to be human. Kick ass china-rider too!
Subject: Turning lemons into lemonade...
OK, we all know the Unbroken Chain breakout show on 3-19 gets all the pub from this 3 day run in Philly and rightfully so, but dont overlook the St Patty's Day show. Though the sound in the Spectrum can be pretty poor and bass-heavy on an AUD, this SBD is a supremely nice crisp & enjoyable download. It is a high-energy show, well-played throughout with Jerry happy to be ripping it up. A great HC Sunshine to open and a tight first set. The China Cat is fast and fun but the highlight is the Lucy encore. Basically Jerry forgets the opening lyrics so the band proceeds to play the song as an instrumental with Jerry playing the vocal lines on the guitar for the first verse. Once they hit the first chorus of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" (which they do sing) they play the song in its entirety with vocals. A great example of the Dead being the Dead. Not to be missed.
